My idea was to write a mathematical value class which can operate on
integers and floats using different rounding algorithms (hence
numeric_cast<int>(double from_sqrt) etc. ) and switch statically this
type to see later which better fits my needs. Initialized are this
values from boost.units where doubles are preferred as underlying type.
Probably I have to specialize this class for integers and floats.
